Due to heavy rains in late April, it’s been a late planting year for farmers in Ohio.
Jason Ward farms over 500 acres of organic crops in the Miami Valley.
He planted late this year because of rain in April and early May. He says the ground was too moist and if he’d planted his seeds then they would have rotted in the ground. But, he says, he finished planting his fields about 10 days ago and now it needs some rain.
